The Irony


Merry Christmas everyone!!

Although this year has been great, this has honestly been one of the most ironic Christmas’s ever.  It has shown me even at the ripe old age of 44 there are still many valid lessons to learn.  Even when you think you have great judgement my judgement is still fallible.  Fallible in such poor taste that it actually contradicts many of my own deep core values.  It’s not so much failing on my core values, it’s the long lasting example, memory, and impression that I just made on my family.  Most will not think much of it however I will quietly own it.  That’s how I roll.  Internalize it, think about it, make a correction and then move on.  I never claimed to be perfect.

I’m an over the top type of guy and I always have been.  Christmas Eve I think I took it a little over the top and for once I actually forgot where I came from.  I think I officially became a folly and I’ll take on that well deserved title.  Normally I wear that proudly (I like being the funny guy) but this time I’m a bit ashamed.  I know I’m being a bit hard on myself but I’ll pin on the ol’ Folly Achievement Medal as this time its well deserved.  Now it’s time to stand up, think about it for a time and move on.

I wish I could write about the irony of this whole thing as it would either make you cry, make one say whelp….you Reap what you Sow or just simply make you laugh. Either way life has shown me that Karma is only a breath away.  Karma stalks you and quietly awaits for your mistakes.  After that small yet critical mistake, Karma will remind you for a lifetime that she’s peering over your shoulder.  Karma is peering and waiting to exploit your weaknesses so she can insert her shank in your ribcage.  Once that mistake has been made and Karma’s shank has been inserted, she twists it and then looks up at you with a grin.  After that clever smile, she turns her back and then patiently waits for that ironic moment to strike once again.  Tonight karma took the time to strike.

I know this sounds a little deep for Christmas day,  don’t take it that way.  It’s a lesson that I learned on my own.

Now a serious Merry Christmas to everyone and a Happy New Year!  I’ve got lots of great plans and some truly exciting events happening. and I’m truly looking forward to it!

Do take care,
